You know Christmas is approaching FAST!! I seem to always be making cards at the last minute. However this year I am more prepared. (YEA!!!) All of my Christmas cards are done.
Today is the 1st Tuesday of the month and that means its time for me to post a fun inspiration project for Craft-Dee BowZ.
Since we are really getting closer to Christmas, I decided to spotlight another Christmas card.
I have used an image from Bugaboo and I hope you like this one.
I have been on a foiling kick lately. I decided to foil this image so I printed this image out 3 times using my laser printer. I foiled each of the images in a different color. I used blue, green and red foils. I used my Heidi Swapp Minc Machine to apply the foil to the laser printed areas.
I used blue foil for the base image. That made the snowflakes and the sentiment foiled in blue.
For the next image, (I foiled it in green foil) I took the green foiled piece and added some green alcohol marker coloring between the foiled lines, fussy cut just the two green foiled stockings and attached them with dimensional foam, over the original stockings. Lastly, I took the 3rd image, I foiled it with red foil and also colored between some of the lines with some red alcohol marker. I fussy cut just the red foiled stocking and attached it over the green image with dimensional foam to pop this up
Here is a closer view that will show off those foil colors.
I intentionally left the glare on the image to show off the foiling and the colors.
Here is the finished card.
